Mariners re-sign Robert Andino

Jamie Squire

After non-tendering Robert Andino a contract at Friday night's deadline, the Seattle Mariners quickly re-signed the versatile infielder to a new contract.

At Friday night's deadline to tender or non-tender players contracts for 2013, the Seattle Mariners surprisingly decided not to tender Robert Andino a contract, making the newly acquired player a free agent. Soon after the team announced that transaction, the Mariners also announced that Andino re-signed with the team.

#Mariners have re-signed infielder Robert Andino to a Major League contract. Andino was non-tendered earlier today.

The Mariners acquired Andino from the Baltimore Orioles earlier in late November in exchange for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.

At 28 years of age, the versatile infielder hit .211 at the plate while slugging just .305 in 431 plate appearances. One thing Andino can do is play defense just about anywhere on the diamond, giving him a role on the Mariners -- unlike Robinson, who the team parted with.

With the winter meetings beginning on Monday, there will be one less thing on Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik's shopping list.
